His name is Pasquale Maassen and he's well known in Germany for his outstanding one-pattern-live-acts that makes crowd goes frenzy. Apart from releasing on Bitshift, Crowbar and other real labels he's a blast from Cologne with style. Full fledged techno, Children, mark our words. This is the sound of pure techno... What used to be pure is now corrupted or more delicately said 'has changed'. Ones views cannot be discussed since we're all different... Still, some say that the 'real techno' is dying. Here's a living proof that this sayings are not true. And not only that techno lives, but it is back in it's full! - Pasquale Maassen brings us to the final frontier... the battle line of the bravest ones with his new 5-track Open Source EP. Fast, hard, driving, moving, bashing.. Let's put it this way: "DAS IST TECHNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!".
Tcsh - driving & flipping... Tcsh is track that seriously involves everyone who hears it into a new kind of looking through the 'electronic-music glasses'. Stop, drop, roll! – This song gives out directives as it was some kind of a smooth & up-running drill sergeant whose manners are polite & intentions are good, yet there’s something about his approach that doesn’t add up to the whole "nice & shiny" picture.
Ash - a techno classic that is suitable for both, moving you across the whole dance floor with its pumping beat or as a DJ tool that will come in great for powering up the mix at its high point. This one is a definite reminder to everyone who has forgotten how pure techno sounds & feels like.
X-Term - drive baby... drive!! Kicks, snares, hats, kick-ass dark bass, back-spins & old school breaks... these are more than enough to send anybody on the real journey of electronic sound or more to be more precise "techno". Ups & downs track with a constant build-me-up structure which surprises with it’s complexity in simplicity. A true avantgarde & a pure techno classic, all in one!!
Bash - a track whose name is a description it self. This one is a real basher which will make you jump from one feet to the other even if it’s almost morning. Powerful beats combined with carefully implanted breaks and then spiced up with a mashed-up vocal together give us a real floor-killer! Caution for all the DJs out there: use this one only when you need a 'sure thing' on the floor! The future is now... and it's bashing around!
Dash - the story continues, as it should of course. Dash is actually some sort of a sequel to its rhyme brother 'Bash'. Pumping & driving techno track with sexxxy female vocal & kick-you-in-the-nuts bass! Ready for some 'action'?
